    Story
    (6)

    Walt Larimore was a young "flatlander" physician with a wife and three-year-old daughter when he set up his first practice in the little mountain hamlet of Bryson City, North Carolina. Schooled in the latest medical technology, the eager doctor discovered that there were some things in rural practice for which medical school just hadn't prepared him. He found his patients were often his best teachers, and his classroom ranged from hospital corridors and smelly barns to homey kitchens and mountain streams.

    William says: "Not too bad, but...."
    "A piece of the NC mountains"
    Overall

    Anyone who thinks this story sounds like fiction has never spent years in the mountains of NC. Such a slice of life! I enjoyed the stories from the midwives to the fishermen; from the realities of hospital politics to the pain of having a disabled child.

    The small-town stories are almost too familiar! As a tubing enthusiast who loves Deep Creek it sounds like home!

    The story is heavy on faith, just as life in NC *is* - yes, doctors here STILL offer to pray with you. Not politically correct in some parts of the country, as many expect certain professionals to exist separate from their faith. I have to tell you Dr Larimore is never condeming of those of another faith, simply expressing the joy he has found in his own - that is refreshing! A REALISTIC and joyful slice of life.

    I have already searched to see if his complete collection is on Audible and will download it whenever it becomes available.

    Cherie says: "Boomerang"
    "Boom Kids!"
    Overall

    As long-time Boomerang fans my children request these over, and over, and over again... The oldest enjoys the time travel segments and the youngest cannot get over the jokes. The balanced history, social studies, and ethics lessons are snuck in there while we are being entertained, and the kids will ask to listen again and again!

    From Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, here are the best stories of 2002, written by four of the most respected writers of our day: Robert Silverberg, James Patrick Kelly, Ian Watson, and Gregory Benford. Also try The Best of Analog Science Fiction and Fact Magazine and The Best of Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine 2002.

    Jim Harris says: "Mislabeled but good"
    "Expecting much, got little."
    Overall

    Since the title says "The Best of..." I was expecting the best, but was very disappointed. Maybe I am not on the same wavelength needed for the content. I hope that 2003 edition is much better.
